Is it easier to be a troll, or to harass someone because nobody knows your name?
Randi Zuckerberg thinks so and she’s pretty important in this discussion as she’s Facebook’s marketing maven. She was answering questions for a magazine about the future of Facebook and while there she said Annonymity has to go!
Here is a bit of the story from the Daily Mail-
Mrs Zuckerberg argued the end of on-line anonymity could help curb the trend of trolling and harassment on the web.
Speaking at a Marie Claire panel discussion on social media, she said: ‘ I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away.
‘People behave a lot better when they have their real names down. … I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors.’
